I never thought that I would have trouble getting pregnant. At first we had fun "trying".... but after a few months without success, the scientist in me came out- I began tracking daily temperature, monitoring my LH levels, plotting my cycle length, and describing my cervical mucus. <<yuck. I know. But everything seemed very regular and perfectly cyclic. I went to my regular OB, who told to me just keep trying. Luckily, she still referred me to a Reproductive endocrinologist. Blood tests came back mostly normal- except for AMH- indicative of low egg reserve. Long story short- fertility treatments failed for this uterus. Me and my significant other, The Manager, are now looking for a uterus to rent. Thankfully, we found Super Uterus- a hero who is helping us have our baby. I relied on many internet friends and resources to navigate my early days of infertility. In this blog- I hope to share with you my story of infertility, advocacy and surrogacy.
The Phoenix - rising from the ashes of infertility. Super power- extreme worrying.
